Welcome to Nothern France, I hope you'll like living here! The weather can be a little fickle sometimes (well, most of the time actually), but people are very friendly.
In case you haven't found a place yet and if you speak French, have a look at this website: http://www.leboncoin.fr/annonces/offres/nord_pas_de_calais/ You can browse offers by category and usually there are lots of opportunities.
Best of luck and enjoy your time in the North. There are plenty of things to do and see in the area as well as in Belgium. "Beerland" rocks!
